How to Make It

Step 1

Cook potatoes:

Step 2

OVEN: Preheat oven to 400°. Pierce potatoes with a fork, and wrap each in foil. Bake until tender, 1 hour.

Step 3

MICROWAVE: Pierce potatoes with a fork, and wrap each in a paper towel. Place in microwave, and cook on high 8 minutes, until just tender when pierced with a fork (potatoes will continue to cook when removed from microwave).

Step 4

While potatoes are cooking, make sauce:

Step 5

Combine milk and flour in a small saucepan, bring to simmer, and cook, whisking, until thickened, 2–3 minutes. Add cheese, salt, pepper, and cayenne, and whisk until sauce is smooth. Continue to simmer, whisking, an additional 2 minutes.

Step 6

Heat broccoli in a heat-safe dish in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, until hot.

Step 7

Split cooked potatoes open with a knife. Spoon 1/2 cup broccoli into each potato, and top with 1/4 cup Cheddar sauce.

I used fresh broccoli and steamed it in the microwave.  Came together quickly.  Great as a meatless meal, but I served with pan seared flounder; delicious.
